Hip replacement surgery - if I survive I'm getting a new router
I'm getting a new right hip on February 7th. As a reward for having great insurance (which means it will cost me nothing for all medical services), I'm getting a new router. My 41-year-old Craftsman (bought several years ago from a guy who used it once in 1984 for 40 dollars including case, 19 bits, and still had the hang tags on it), has served me well but I'm ready to get another one.
As I'm more a DIY than fine woodworker, I'm seriously considering the Bosch GKF125CEN with additional plunge base and new edge guide. I'll still look for a big one for a future router table, but in the meantime, I'll get good use out of a smaller palm router.
All the reviews and demos I've seen have been positive. For less than $300 I can get it all with new bits. Is there anything I'm missing in considering this Bosch?
Yours for a new hip and router,
